Sleeps 8. Very spacious and beautifully furnished, on two floors joined by a spiral staircase. A relaxing getaway away from the tourist hordes, but also within easy reach of the treasures of Florence, Siena and Pisa. Seaside is forty minutes' drive. Ideal for culture vultures, walking or for hardy bikers who like challenging hills!

Standing on a small hillock immediately off the road, Tuscan Skies has magnificent views all round. To one side, Volterra 'city of magic and mystery' stands on top of one side of the valley, while ancient Montecatini Val di Cecina sits on the other.

Tuscan Skies was built as two separate apartments which we have joined as one property. As a result, there is ample, airy space for our gues...

About the neighbourhood
Volterra has Etruscan, Roman and mediaeval remains, including an impressive Roman theatre, plus several museums. The main traditional industry is alabaster, and there are plenty of shops/workshops where you can see alabaster products being made.

There are festivals virtually every week in one or other of the local towns. Volterra's best festival is Volterra AD1398. It takes place over two weekends in August. The centre of the town is sealed off and given over to middle ages stalls, children's games and sports such as tug-o'-war and crossbow contests. At other times there are flag-throwing contests, food markets and street theatre.

For 'New Moon' fans, there are guided tours. The tourist information office has free maps of locations from the book.

Excellent rest...
